4: There once was a little girl and she loved to dance.
6: She loved to twirl around | and do leaps, jetes
7: plies | peakas, and lots more
8: But besides that she loved a shoe, now it was just no ordinary shoe, it was a ballet shoe.The most prettiest, gorgeous, pinkest ballet shoe ever!
9: when she would wake up from bed, she would go and put her ballet shoes on, and dance around. She wanted to be a dance teacher when she grew up, and everyone knew she would, she practiced all the time! This ballet show was her favorite shoe in the whole wide world!
10: Then one morning when she woke up, she got out of bed and went downstairs to eat her mom’s yummy and delicious chocolate chip pancakes. They were her favorite. When she was all full and done eating, she went to go practice dance.
12: She got on her cute, little ballet outfit. When she got all dressed up she needed one more thing, her favorite ballet shoes. She went to her closet and opened it up, to get them.
13: She looked on her shoe rack to find them, and they weren’t there. “Oh no” she yelled, “Where are they”?
15: She started going through her closet and throwing stuff left to right. She still couldn’t find them.
16: She looked in her bin, not there | She looked under her bed, not there
17: She looked in her toy box, not there | She looked everywhere. And she still couldn’t find them!
18: She started to cry. She ran downstairs to her mom. “Mommy, mommy", she yelled. “What’s wrong sweetie”? Her mommy said. “I can’t find my favorite ballet shoes”! The little girl said. “I can’t find them anywhere” she cried.
19: “Don’t worry, we will find them, your baby brother probably took them, or you just put them somewhere else”, her mom said. “Your daddy and I will help you find it, ok”?, “ok fine" the little girl said. So they all went searching for her favorite ballet shoes.
20: They looked left, right, up, down, over, and under everywhere, and not a single sight of her favorite ballet shoes.
21: The little girl cried and cried. “They’re not here mommy and daddy, there gone there gone, we will never find them"! She said. "we will find them, don’t worry honey", her parents said. “Those are my favorite ballet shoes ever ,I will never be an amazing dancer without them!” she said as she ran away crying.
22: "We have to buy her new ballet shoes”, her mommy said to her daddy. "ill go out tonight and get her new ones” he said “sounds good”, her mother said.
23: So the little girl’s daddy went to his car, and drove to a dance store in the town near them. When he got there, he went inside and looked around for ballet shoes.
24: He looked and looked, then, he found the perfect pair for her. They were very pretty, and they were pink and very sparkly. “She will love these”, He said to himself. So he went and bought those beautiful shoes, and then went home.
25: When he go there, he called the little girl down, and said,"I have a surprise for you sweetie”. She came running down. “What, what, did you find my shoes”? “No, but better” he said. Then he opened the box up, and showed her those beautiful shoes.
26: “No”, she said, "those aren’t my favorite shoes, I can’t use any other shoe, except my favorite ballet shoe, ill never be an amazing dancer without them”. She said as she walked away very sad.
27: Mommy and daddy didn’t know what to do. The next morning her mommy had a brilliant idea! She thought of getting the same exact shoes as the little girl’s favorite ballet shoes. So she went out to the dance store and bought them.
28: When she came home, she called the little girl down, “look sweetie I got the same shoes as your favorite shoes”. “No”, the little girl said. “I need MY ballet shoes, only MY favorite shoes can make me into an amazing dancer”. Then she ran away crying.
29: Mommy and daddy didn’t know what to do. There was nothing they can do, that little girl only wanted HER favorite ballet shoes.
30: She was crying and crying, saying to herself, “ill never be an amazing dancer”. So her mommy and daddy went upstairs to her and started talking to her.
31: “Sweetie it’s ok”. Her mommy and daddy said. “But I need those shoes to be an amazing dancer”.
32: “Honey you don’t need those shoes to be an amazing dancer, you already are one”.
33: The little girl smiled and hugged her mommy and daddy. “Thank you mommy and daddy, you’re right I don’t need those shoes to be an amazing dancer”.
35: She hugged her parents again, and her parents kissed her on the forehead. Then the little girl ran and put her new ballet shoes on that her mommy and daddy just got her.
37: She started dancing around, she was happy, and she was truly an amazing dancer.
